The Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care is an umbrella and representative organisation which, through a collaborative approach, supports and contributes to the development and strategic direction of palliative care in Scotland.
Our objective is to promote equitable access throughout Scotland to high quality palliative care for all patients and families on the basis of need not diagnosis. With our member organisations, we contribute to national thinking and policy in relation to palliative care and promote improvements in service delivery at local level.
This website will tell you more about palliative care and palliative care services in Scotland, as well as about the activities and publications of the Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care. We hope you find it useful.
